Sports and Entertainment Industry Challenges and Trends
Many athletes and entertainers work across multiple states, complicating federal and state taxes. Partnering with an entertainment tax accounting firm that understands the intricacies of state and local tax regulations is imperative to minimizing your tax liability.
The sports and entertainment industry is experiencing immense disruption with concerts on hold and sporting events with limited fans. During times of uncertainty, it is key to revisit your financial plan to stay on track with your long-term strategies and goals.
For athletes and entertainers, wealth management is crucial for budgeting, planning for retirement and protecting assets. However, as income comes in quickly, managing it can be a hurdle. You need a wealth management advisor who takes a client-first approach, focusing on your individual needs and best interests.
